Mickey Shunick Suspect May Be Serial Killer

Filed in Gather News Channel by on July 17, 2012 0 Comments

Mickey Shunick may not have been the only victim of Brandon Scott Lavergne. At least that’s being suggested by some of the latest updates in the case of the missing anthropology student. The disturbing details behind the search of the man’s home in St. Landry Parish reveal, at the least, a pattern of disturbing behavior surrounding an obsession with women. To put it lightly, this man is probably responsible for the disappearances of more than just Michaela “Mickey” Shunick.

An “undisclosed number” of women’s ID cards were discovered during the search of Brandon Scott Lavergne’s home after he was arrested. Officials are not revealing any of the identities of the women indicated by the picture identification cards, nor are they clarifying on what agencies were contacted during this investigation. How many missing women are there in Louisiana? What other states did this man travel to during his time between arrests as a registered sex offender?

As the driver of a white Chevy pickup, could it at all be possible that he’s responsible for the disappearance of Lauren Spierer? Was her ID card ever found after her disappearance?

The fact that he saved an “undisclosed amount” of picture ID cards, indicates that he was keeping trophies, which is typical behavior of a serial killer. It’s well believed that he abducted and murdered Mickey Shunick. Was her ID card among those found?

It’s safe to speculate that the search for Mickey’s remains may also be the search for more remains, as it’s likely that this man has many victims. It wouldn’t be at all surprising.
